;;; Commentary:

;; Terminals that use XON/XOFF flow control can cause problems with
;; GNU Emacs users.  This file contains Emacs Lisp code that makes it
;; easy for a user to deal with this problem, when using such a
;; terminal. 
;; To invoke these adjustments, a user need only invoke the function
;; enable-flow-control-on with a list of terminal types in his/her own
;; .emacs file.  As arguments, give it the names of one or more terminal
;; types in use by that user which require flow control adjustments.
;; Here's an example: 
;;	(enable-flow-control-on "vt200" "vt300" "vt101" "vt131")

;; Portability note: This uses (getenv "TERM"), and therefore probably
;; won't work outside of UNIX-like environments.

;;; Code:

(defvar flow-control-c-s-replacement ?\034
  "Character that replaces C-s, when flow control handling is enabled.")
(defvar flow-control-c-q-replacement ?\036
  "Character that replaces C-q, when flow control handling is enabled.")

(defun enable-flow-control (&optional argument)
  "Toggle flow control handling.

With arg, enable flow control mode if arg is positive, otherwise disable."

  "Enable flow control if using one of a specified set of terminal types.
Use `(enable-flow-control-on \"vt100\" \"h19\")' to enable flow control

you must type C-\\ to get the effect of a C-s, and type C-^

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
